before the storm

before the storm

Pitigliano, Tuscany

looks peaceful enough at this moment...but it was a classic case of the calm before the storm...minutes later rain arrived in a torrential downpour...people were stranded inside the restaurant by the intensity of the rainfall...others were trapped by the bar, where it was easier to make the best of the I'm told..

Good thing there are posts out in front in case the cars couldn't see where they were going in the down pour. I guess you were pretty unlucky with the weather, but you got a very fine shot here anyways. V

So you say restaurant owners cause regular downpours to raise their income:) Fantastic atmosphere of the silence before storm. Fine work David!
